Lesley Logan: It’s Fuck Yeah Friday.
Brad Crowell: Fuck yeah.
Lesley Logan: Get ready for some wins.
Welcome to the Be It Till You See It podcast where we talk about taking messy action, knowing that perfect is boring. I’m Lesley Logan, Pilates instructor and fitness business coach. I’ve trained thousands of people around the world and the number one thing I see stopping people from achieving anything is self doubt. My friends, action brings clarity and it’s the antidote to fear. Each week, my guests will bring Bold, Executable, Intrinsic and Targeted steps that you can use to put yourself first and Be It Till You See It. It’s a practice, not a perfect. Let’s get started.
Hey Be It babe, welcome to Fuck Yeah Friday. Oh my goodness, somebody wins. One of those wins is like this FYF even happening, but I’ll explain that more when it’s my turn. So what we do first is we celebrate your wins and then we’ll celebrate one of mine and this is to inspire you to think about some wins in your life that you might not even be considering wins. And you have to because otherwise it just is a slog, isn’t it? So we have one from Tammy Adrian George, she is an OPC teacher. She’s also in our agency group and she said FYF to us all. I was supposed to appear for jury duty. No calling, I cleared the whole day. Then got miraculously released. So bonus day, so she got an insane amount of laundry done. Probably because I was listening to the Be It podcast, also listen to Do Epic Shit podcast guesting and it went so well. And I now have a few core topics that all of my episodes steer to the same focus that I want. In the midst of pitching someone, I realized they don’t actually have any spots open until mid June. It was so freaking awesome to offer a waitlist spot if a cancellation happens. Wind down for the school year. It’s just over two weeks away, which is like actually happened at this point, means every week has offends, meetings and forms that are mandatory. And so I’m fully booked. I worked extra over the last month so there’s no missing the good stuff. My client with MS just returned for a month in Paris and London seeing family and their old stomping grounds. She was so free to fall in that she was going to cancel it. She had a blast. And although she did it with me for years, we spent the last six months training with cobblestone streets, stone stairs, museum floors, and learning how to fall and recover in mind. So she said, Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you, Tammy for sharing all of those wins. Oh my goodness, a way to have an extra bonus day and like realize that you are actually waitlisting people and then meeting clients where they are, so so awesome. I love it. Okay, we have another win. This is from Chris Fenton. She is an eLevate round two person. And she got her new Contrology handles and she put them on a reformer. When I took OPC class and did rowing one, I had a light bulb moment when the shoulders opened up and the palms turned down at the end of the move. Before I switched them out. The straps were keeping my palms facing up for the entire finish. So if you don’t know, pull on, it’s rowing. It’s okay. I know how big this linen is. It’s so so key. If you ever are doing Pilates, and you just feel your shoulders and your ears all the time, check your handles, check your handles, she put some actual wood handles on to her reformer instead of having straps. And it makes a big difference. And I’m happy to nerd out about that if you want. So just ask me for a Be It Pod question or on our YouTube channel as well. Okay, now, for my win. So it’s two wins this week, one of them is I’ve been really wanting to reduce my screen time. I’ve been wanting to like have more time to sit down and read a book or just journal or whatever. And I have been listening to other podcasts. And they’ve been doing these like different challenges where they like literally used a flip phone for a week. And then they put their phone in some sort of lockbox every day. And there was another challenge where they had to, like, do a couple things to like answer some questions before they even open an app. And I was like, Okay, these are all really interesting and got me more intrigued about like, how much time I was like on my screen, because I’m on my screen for home screens for work. So I’m not going to go away from that. But like, how much additional time am I adding to my screen time. And I’m not nearly as bad as them. Oh, my goodness. Some of them are like opening their phone like 400 times a day. Like I’m not. I’m not doing that. Oh, however, I just felt like, well, where am I spending most of my time? And you know, it’s not social media apps, because I don’t really spend a ton of time on there. I dropped my stuff, I celebrate the people who are engaging with us and like kind of look at some friends and I move on for the day. So wasn’t there. It was just one video game that I love. And I was like, you know, I probably don’t need to play it as much as we are. And so I was trying to figure out how to like, get rid of it because I do like having it as a wind down thing. But I didn’t want to or like when I’m like on the plane or whatever. So I didn’t want to just delete the app that’s also by the way, not how you break a habit, you do not just like create a void that’s gonna 1,000% create suction. So I was like, What can I do? So I used my how to unravel a habit you no longer want to have. And I turned my phone display into a gray scale from the time I do my night walk with the dogs all the way till breakfast. So it means every time I open my phone, it’s all black and white, you can’t really see the apps, when you do open an app, you can’t really tell what’s going on, like what’s a button what’s not a button because like there’s no colors to like, make this thing fun to use. And so I did it for one week, you guys. And now I don’t even have to put my phone in grayscale. I don’t even, like, I don’t touch my game until breakfast. And I play it while I’m having some breakfast. And I’ll play it like while I’m stretching on my mat at night. But like I’ve reduced my consumption of this game by like two thirds, which is insane. Now, to be honest, it’s not created more time for reading. However, you have to make the space first so this is why it’s so important, my overachievers, I couldn’t make the goal to use the game less and read more at the same time. That’d be a huge change in the life. So I just unraveled the prompts that let me use the game and took away ways of making the game easy to play. And then the next step could be reading. So we’ll work on that, I’ll update you on another FYF. The second win is just that this FYF is even happening. To be honest, I like literally can’t get to the internet for whatever reason to work in the podcast room. It works until I want to open up an app and then it doesn’t work. And that’s a quiz going on. I was just in the next room over and I have amazing internet. I tried hotspot I tried all these things. I honestly was like, fuck it, I’m just gonna do it later. And I like the team needs it. I have a win to share, like I’ve got these other things. And so truth be told, I was like, Okay, What are other ways we could do this? So if you’re watching this on YouTube, and it looks a little different, it’s because I had to like (…) camera. And I hope that this I actually have no idea if the team is able to use any of this but fingers crossed. So I just want to say you should celebrate wins where like you have to overcome major obstacles, because it’s an even bigger deal than if it had been the easiest thing in the world. So celebrate that you like overcame an obstacle like the doors slamming shut and you’re still able to find a way to do something, because I’m celebrating this one today.
